PRNFC is a recreational and instructional flying organization based at NAS Patuxent River in Lexington Park. Membership is open to all active duty, reserve, and retired military, Civil Air Patrol, civil servants, DoD contractors, and their immediate families. If you are a certified pilot, or interested in learning how to fly, join the PRNFC! The club meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 5:30pm, at the clubhouse (Bldg 336 on base behind the post office). Visitors are welcome to attend. For more information contact the club at 301-862-1110. The club manager is usually in the office on weekdays from 1230 to 1400.
The objectives of PRNFC are to provide an off-duty, voluntary educational opportunity for base personnel to develop skills in aeronautics including piloting, navigation, mechanics, and other related aero sciences. We provide an opportunity for naval aviators to maintain pilot proficiency skills while assigned to non-flying billets, encourage awareness and appreciation of aviation requirements and techniques, provide a facility designed to assist in meeting the recreational needs for low-cost, safe, light aircraft operations, and provide a social program in the interest of promoting club activities and morale.
